The Project

Aerobatic - Showdisplay - Tandemflying

Aerobatic has its own fascination, especially with a hang glider and it takes years to know the performance of the glider in each situation. Thinking of Airshows at the beginning of the age of flying, it was a dream for me to point out the fascination of hang gliding in a very different way.


My first Glider was a MOYES RS – 4, a great glider at the beginning of this project. I came along with this glider for a few years, until I got the chance to get MOYES RX 3.5. At this stage, the best solution for this project. Great performance and very nice and easy handling. All maneuvers can be flown dynamically and it makes a lot of fun.

After a difficult decision, I chose now a brand new ICARO2000 Glider in the special edition design and aerobatic setup by Manfred Ruhmer.
Pictures will follow soon.
Skyline Flightgear Zero Drag with increasing of all strong used parts. Carbon bridges and a double stitched mounting, modification of the slider for increased strength and 2 rescue systems are in place. All this work was done by Skyline Flightgear. Thanks to Wolfgang and his Team.
To remember the beginning of hang gliding, the harness which was used, wasn’t aerodynamic at all. Acro pilots used harnesses called cocoon or in German “Schürze”. Almost 35 years ago the first Cocoon was built. Lightweight and small packing measure makes this type popular. Also, the flexibility of pilot reaction is a big feature and the reason why I chose this one for aerobatic. WillsWing Flylite 3 Cocoon is a very good choice.
